Stellenbosch Visits London

  • September 12, 2016

Last week London got a taste of #visitStellenbosch, when Luiz Hara - The London Foodie - hosted a Stellenbosch Supper Club at his house. Guests enjoyed a Japanese inspired feast deliciously paired with wines from Spier, Jordan Wines, Stellenbosch Vineyards, L'Avenir, Kleine Zalze and Waterford Estate, showcasing the versatility of our wines. It seems London loves Stellenbosch and wants to visit as soon as possible to experience the wine, hospitality and beauty at source.
